What I do
I have always been interested in helping people reconnect to the core of who they are: lovable, worthwhile, awesome, abundant, powerful and creative beings.
Having been on a continual lifelong journey of personal growth and transformation, I am now doing what I believe is my life's work which is supporting others along their life's path.
I support people to create positive changes in their lives and develop their emotional wellbeing.

My Background and Education
I came across Holistic Pulsing twenty years ago, when I was at an album launch in Sydney. I was talking to the songwriter's girlfriend who was a Holistic Pulsing Practitioner and I was intrigued. Soon after, I had a session with her and I loved it!
Holistic Pulsing was developed by Dr Tovi Browning and I am fortunate enough to be one of a handful of people in Australia who trained to diploma level with Dr Browning. This ensures that my training is pure and undiluted. I am also qualified to teach Holistic Pulsing.
In both my private practice and within the community, I have been able to help many people. A particular highlight has been working with the AIDS council in Sydney and training carers to use basic Holistic Pulsing techniques with people living with HIV and AIDS.
It seems a lifetime ago but I have worked in corporate marketing, having left that world in the mid 90s in search of something more meaningful to me. Among my search for something more, I travelled to India and spent four years undertaking intensive meditation and developing my spiritual practice. It was upon my return to Australia that I went back to university and became a teacher looking to make a positive impact on the lives of children.
I have a Bachelor of Education, having worked in early childhood and primary schools. I have loved working as a teacher, having viewed my role as an educator and nurturer of young hearts and minds. I combine my teaching experience, knowledge of psychology, understanding behaviour and human development in my work.
In my current role as an Emotional Wellbeing Educator, I work with children to help them develop a strong sense of self and to equip them with the skills and strategies, personal resources and knowledge, to cultivate resilience so they can handle life's ups and downs, stay connected to their true selves and thrive in their home and school life.
I help parents learn how to use their children’s emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching, as well as to understand and use emotions effectively to self soothe and to use these skills to assist in problem solving and/or limit setting.
My path has lead me to also focus on emotional wellbeing and to work with women to teach skills to regulate their emotions and get their emotional needs met. I also have an interest in helping teachers build resilience through self care practises.
